Central Michigan Betting Stats & 2019 Season Profile

  • Season Record: 8-4
  • Against-the-Spread Record: 9-2-1
  • Conference: MAC
  • Offense Yards Per Play Rank: 34
  • Defense Yards Per Play Rank: 49
  • S&P+ Special Teams Rank: 107

Analysis: Things didn’t go well for Jim McElwain at Florida but he’s made an immediate impact on Central Michigan. The Chips were just 1-11 in 2018 but McElwain got them to eight wins in his first year on the job. Everything about this Central Michigan team is legit. On offense, they rank 34th in yards per play and have great success rate numbers. Tennessee quarterback transfer Quentin Dormady has done a great job in his last season of college football and a great offensive line has helped him and the Chippewas reach the MAC Championship. Defensively, Central Michigan can be susceptible to good passing offense, but they dominate run-first teams. Keep that in mind before betting Central Michigan’s bowl game. –Kyle Miller

San Diego State Betting Stats & 2019 Season Profile

  • Season Record: 9-3
  • Against-the-Spread Record: 7-5
  • Conference: Mountain West
  • Offense Yards Per Play Rank: 123
  • Defense Yards Per Play Rank: 9
  • S&P+ Special Teams Rank: 11

Analysis: A disappointing 14-11 loss at Hawaii kept the Aztecs out of the Mountain West Championship, marking three consecutive missed years since their two-year run as champions in 2015 and 2016. Still, San Diego State eclipsed its Vegas win total from the summer with nine overall victories, and each of its three losses came by less than a touchdown, thanks mostly to a stellar defense. The Aztecs ranked 16th in the country in defensive SP+ — and 11th in special teams — which helped counter an offense that ranked No. 128. –Danny Donahue
